I Know Best

Aug 26th, 2015 by admin

We all live in a day when submission to authority and selflessness are often absent and believed to be a weakness.  The world promotes with great conviction a philosophy that is in opposition to the Word of God: “me first,” “my needs are more important,” and “no one is going to tell me what to do.”  Too many believers adopt this philosophy and then wonder why they struggle with contentment, joy, and satisfaction.  The answer is simple.  A believer cannot obtain contentment, joy, and satisfaction apart from a Biblical way of life.  Living in opposition to the Word of God and embracing this “me-first” philosophy is not the position we should choose to live.  Matthew 20:26-28 states, “But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” The sad truth is the world’s philosophy has gained too many followers within the church. Take time to examine your heart today…look at your way of life (philosophy).  Are you following the example of Jesus Christ in Matthew 20:28 and ministering to or serving others (others…like your spouse, children, co-workers, and even your “enemies”)?  A servant’s heart is a way of life…the Biblical way of life.   Start with a step of victory and come to church this Sunday looking to be a blessing to others…I’ll be looking for you!

Living one step at a time,

What is your relationship with God like?

"We should always look upon ourselves as God's servants, placed in God's world, to do his work; and accordingly labour faithfully for him; not with a design to grow rich and great, but to glorify God, and do all the good we possibly can."
-- David Brainerd, Pioneer Missionary

“A faithful servant may be wiser than the master, and yet retain the true spirit and posture of the servant. The humble man looks upon every, the feeblest and unworthiest, child of God, and honors him and prefers him in honor as the son of a King.”
-- Andrew Murray, from his book, Humility

"Hell is the highest reward that the devil can offer you for being a servant of his."
-- Billy Sunday, Evangelist
